Book Summary:
(Taken from Goodreads)

Erin is a young psychologist, with no time for anything but her work, and unable to remember anything about her past. She leads an uneventful life, but a lonely one, in which she secretly wishes for a soulmate...

Conner is an unusual patient who approaches her, thrusting her into a strange world of darkness that runs beneath our own. He believes himself to be a creature of legend - a werewolf. But he also draws Erin with a roguish charm, and an irresistible feeling that seems to bind them together ...

Conner desperately tries to save her from an unknown evil that pursues her with a relentless passion that crosses centuries, an evil that once took her very soul away, somewhere in Erin's lost memories.

As she becomes more entwined in a series of events that will remind her of who she really is, will she make it away from the oncoming darkness unscathed ... ?

Kathy's Review:

There's just something really sexy about a werewolf. Perhaps it's because my mental model of a werewolf is Alcide (Joe Mangianello) from True Blood, who is one of the most attractive men on television right now, in my opinion. Conner is a centuries-old were who is a patient in a mental institution - no one believes he is who he says he is, but rather, that he's nuts. Erin is a young psychiatrist with mythical creature experience. When she's requested to treat Conner, there's an instant attraction and rapport between the two. She learns that he is, in fact, a werewolf, and is drawn into a dangerous world.

Erin herself is mysterious - she can't remember her past, and Conner alludes to the fact that she is someone from HIS past. Weird things start happening to her - are they real, or is she having a mental breakdown? Once her past is revealed, you see it coming, but it's not quite what you expect.

Conner is chock-full of sexual tension, werewolf action and intrigue. I really enjoyed it from start to finish. It was well-written and developed, although the editing isn't perfect. I also think the cover art is cheesy and doesn't do the book justice. It looks like there's a sequel in the works, entitled Erin, which I would eagerly read. Get your werewolf fix with Conner - he just might put Alcide to shame.
